Coconut oil is classified as a superfood. And by the word superfood, I mean a nutrient-rich food considered to be especially beneficial for health and well-being.
I just thought I would clarify that because people throw that word around willy nilly these days!
Anyway! To the point…
We love to cook with coconut oil here at Nourishd. Why? Because its is good for you and we are all about the goodness.
Our meals are created to help you nourish your body and get the best out of life, so its a no brainer really to use bloody good oil when cooking with high quality meat and produce.
Coconut oil contains fatty acids with potent medicinal properties.
As in these fatty acids can kill harmful bacteria and prevent infection.
It can increase your bodys ability to burn fat and boost your metabolism ( winning!), not to mention curb unhealthy cravings by improving digestion and nutrient absorption (which is handy because our food is jam packed with veg).
For centuries people have been using coconut oil on their skin and hair and it can improve moisture and help you glow. So cooking with the stuff helps you glow from the inside out.
There are so many great recipes, both sweet and savoury, that use coconut oil in place of dairy these days, which is hugely beneficial to those who are allergic to dairy products. You can even create dairy free chocolate with it!
So, in summary, we think coconut oil is pretty fab. Eat Nourishd and enjoy the all round improved health benefits!
